    I've never been a fan - I thought it was past its prime a decade ago. In fairness, I haven't been in ....6-7 yrs? So maybe there's been a turn around.

      Over the last 5 years, I had two not so good experiences and one okay experience. Food was very, very salty the first two times. I was not very impressed with any aspect of my experience both times. I would never have gone back, but someone gave us a gift certificate. The third time was better, but still not great. Food was decent. I can't remember what we had so nothing memorable or that really stood out. Service was good. The wine by the glass list is awful (a bottle is too much for me and my husband doesn't dring wine). There are other places in Providence that are much, much better for the price. Edit - My most recent and third visit was this past June.

        I just read that they are renovating the interior and will be closed for a few weeks opening back up on 8/18 or 8/19.

        We ended up at 10 steak&sushi.
        Wish we went to Capriccio's now.
        Bordain is right, Tuesday's not the best night to
        eat out.

          Thankfully, 10 and Capriccio are not the only places we have to choose from - I'm not a fan of either.

            Lot of people like 10 and I just dont get it. Much better steak and sushi to be had in Providence.

              yes, 10 sets my teeth on edge. From the noise, to the skeevy faux-hip bar scene, to the mediocre food.

              I'm STILL insulted by those half-@$$ed mashed potatoes I ordered called Death By Butter. Please. In my Irish-American family, we grew up having better mashed potatoes than that 3-4 nights a week, after my mom worked all day even.
